Thus DBI would no longer produce this particularly misleading error message

I couldn't get that to work ... I may well be missing something.

I tried a variety of the changes you mentioned, but whenever I comment out (in "@ISA = qw(Exporter DynaLoader);" I get:
F:\pscrpt>perl -MDBI -e "DBI::FIRSTKEY()" Can't locate object method "dl_load_flags" via package "DBI" at F:/per +lvc7/5.8.8/lib/ line 230. BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at F:/perlvc7/site/5.8.8/lib/ +line 262. Compilation failed in require. BEGIN failed--compilation aborted.

And if I don't comment out that line of code in I always get:
F:\pscrpt>perl -MDBI -e "DBI::FIRSTKEY()" Can't locate auto/DBI/ in @INC (@INC contains: F:/perlvc7/5 +.8.8/lib F:/perlvc7/site/5.8.8/lib F:/perlvc7/site/lib .) at -e line +1

I guess a patch to would be one simple way for me to see exactly what is required. I'd like to know how to change this behaviour and still use DynaLoader. Digest::MD5 gets it right, but it uses XSLoader instead.

  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
